“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.”
Luke 4: 18-19
⚜ The vision that God has given us is based on Luke 4: 18,19. This is the passage that Jesus read at the beginning of His ministry. This was His mission and this is also our mission, since we have the same feelings as in Christ.
⚜ We do not see the movement that God has put on our hearts as an organization, but as a center, the movement of the Spirit, water that flows from under the temple, (Eze 41: 1-7) a place where people from any other Church or even outside of it will come and receive salvation, healing, deliverance, and get equipped in order to reach others and grow themselves.
⚜ We believe in the discipleship process because it is one of the tasks that Christ left to all who believe (Matt 28:19) and is an important aspect of drawing people to the Lord, therefore we pay special attention to the teachings of Jesus, His authority and the power that belongs to us for spreading the Kingdom of God. We are Jesus' disciples on this earth, able to be like Him and walk in His power and Spirit.
⚜ “We believe that all who are led by the Spirit of God are His sons. (Rom 8:14) We consider it vital to be led by the Holy Spirit. He is a person and dwells in us, not leaving for a minute. His task is to comfort, instruct and tell of the things to come. (John 16:13, John 14:26) According to the words of Jesus, we will do greater works than He because Jesus went to the Father and sits at His right hand, and He gave us the Holy Spirit. (John 14:12) The same Spirit that moved Jesus is within us. (Rom 8:11) We learn to be sensitive to the Spirit and not build anything of human.
⚜ God is impartial. (Acts 10:34) He has no favorites, so when we look at people, we love everyone without choosing who is worthy to receive this love and who is not. It doesn't matter for us what happened in your life, what sins and mistakes you committed, what kind of tattoo and what clothes you came in. We look at you through the eyes of Jesus, with the hope for the best in you, helping to reveal the potential that God has laid inside you. We focus not on your appearance, but on the future and hope of Christ for you. We help to remove the burden and all the heaviness thanks to the Holy Spirit and leave your confessions between you and God. (James 5:16)
⚜ Prayer is not a ritual for us, but our life. It is more than a habit to pay tribute to God 3 times a day. We believe that on the basis of the Word we are the temple of the Holy Spirit and He lives in it 24/7. (2 Cor. 6:16) We abide in Him constantly, not dividing our lives into those spheres where we invite Him and where we do not. We do everything with Him, and present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy for reasonable service.
⚜ A renewal of mind is a must in the life of a believer. This can only happen through understanding the Word that we read. (Rom 12: 2) We believe that when a person is born again, his Spirit is resurrected and He unites with God into one, and thus through the sacrifice of Jesus he has communion with the Lord. The soul, which includes emotions, habits, feelings, consciousness, subconsciousness, thoughts, intellect, will, is still in need of renewal. And thanks to the Spirit of God, which is perfect and moved into us, we have all the resources to submit our soul to the Spirit and His Word and we can look, think and speak like Christ.
⚜ We believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are real even today and will manifest through us according to the need of our neighbor for his benefit, regardless of what he needs in a given situation (healing, prophecy, and so on), because God has given us all necessary things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1: 3)
⚜ We believe that in Christ Jesus there is neither male nor female (Gal 3:28), so when Jesus called to the ministry, He said, "These signs will accompany those who believe, they will cast out demons in my name; they will speak in new tongues, they will pick up snakes ; and if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover "(Mark 16: 17,18) therefore this includes men, women and children, everyone who believes in Him. (Jn 7.38)
⚜ When we read the Word, we do not take it out of context, but investigate the Scripture completely (using different translations if necessary), we abandon all religious traditions of a people that have nothing in common with the Spirit of life, but prevent the free access to Jesus.
⚜ We believe that it is the goodness of God leads people to repentance (Rom. 2: 4), not judgment. Therefore, looking at the life of Jesus and His attitude towards people, we take an example from Him, not trying to judge by outward appearance, but by righteous judgment, where mercy is exalted over judgment.
⚜ Everyone is called to the work of God without exception. The primary calling is not a pastor, evangelist, Levite, Sunday school teacher, and so on, but a child of God. (1 John 3: 1) When we walk as children of God then we act in this world like Him, which means we become an answer to someone's need, believing that His mouth is my mouth, His thoughts are my thoughts, His desires are mine. We let the Holy Spirit inside us flow through us to others for the good of our neighbor.
⚜ We believe that who believes in Jesus has life (John 3:36), which includes divine health. We believe that the will of God is to heal regardless of how many unfortunate events happened in our life, our experience or the experience of our ancestors. Sickness has no dominion over us according to the Word, but by the stripes of Jesus we are healed. (1 Peter 2:24)
